Hi, this is my first time posting so please be gentle lol. I went to see my gp at half term as i was feeling low, tearful, anxious etc and she prescribed me Citalopram which has helped slightly but still feeling really low and very anxious at work re obs, deadlines etc. I haven't spoken to anyone at work about this although I did have a little melt down following a recent observation (which went well but just found it hard work). I am scared they will think I've been faking it and/or think I'm not coping well. My issues are a mixture of home and work related, i have had several bereavements in the past 2 years and a major relationship breakdown 4 years ago which i have never really dealt properly with any of these issues. We are due OFSTED soon following HMI for the past 18months as the school was in special measures. I joined the school last year and part of my role/responsibility was to deal with one of the key issues from the inadequate OFSTED. I feel that I don't want to work there any more and would like to change career etc but I feel like I can't do anything until OFSTED have been and gone as that would leave the school is the **** and I would have to work until Easter now with everyone hating me. My main worry is making it to and through the OFSTED,, and I know I'm not performing at my best and like I'm letting the school down by staying. I am not off sick and gp hasn't made any suggestion of signing me off, although I feel like I am struggling. Would anyone offer me some advice? Should i tell my HT/colleagues? should i stay or go? Sorry for the long and rambling post I'm not sure any of it makes much sense!
